First Finish of 2023

 I used to donate plasma twice a week for about 2 years.  
Sometimes my right arm was difficult to hit, enter Brittny.
She was always able to hit my vein on the first try!
Spending so much time at the plasma center I got to know her pretty well.
She and her hubby were wanting to have a baby.
I had to stop  donating because of the breast cancer medication.
She emailed me to let me know they are expecting a baby!!
They are doing the nursery in Winnie the Pooh.
So of course I had to make some stuff for the nursery, right?

I got the quilt top done before we went to NC.
That meant I was able to get it to my LAQ before I left too.
I used a great Winnie the Pooh Minky for the back.
I was also able to make a few other things for the nursery.
I made some self binding blankets, using WTP Minky and pink flannel.
They came out really cute!

I made 2 crib sheets, one flannel and one knit.
I used the leftovers to make burp cloths and reusable wash rags too.

I got the quilt back all quilted up with Bees!!!
It turned out so darling!!!
I really wanted to use this panel for the center but I didn't have one.
I went online and traded to get it.

Look how cute this Minky is too.
Bonus that it is super soft.

I messaged her and asked if we could meet up on Saturday at her work.
I told her I had a little something to drop off for her.
She was completely blindsided and so thankful.
I think she loved all of it!

I took a pic of the two of us.
Isn't she so cute too??

And guess what the baby's name is going to be?


Can you believe that?  
Baby is due next month and now her layette is ready for her!
